With effect from 23 June, 2017, the jeep safari at the Ranthambhore National Park has become costlier. The Forest Department has ordered to introduce new rates last Friday on-wards from the morning shift. Tourists will now have to pay an added sum of Rs 1020/- for the Gypsy safari. The new rates have been increased after March 2015. The revenue generated will be used for the development of the Park.

No increase in Canter safari rates – There has been no change in rates of Canter (open top roof safari bus) safari by the forest department and the rates of open safari buses (Canter) have been decided to be kept the same as earlier.

Jeep safari rates were increased due to high demand for Jeep – According to the forest officials, 80 percent of tourists visiting the park demand private gypsy’s. While the numbers of gypsy’s at the Ranthambore National Park are limited, it is not feasible to provide the same for everyone.  According to the Forest Department, if the rates for the gypsy safari is increased, visitors and tourist’s will opt for the Canter Safari instead. Added advantage here is that the canter can accommodate, 18 to 20 tourists at the same time, and the gypsy can accommodate only 5 to 6 people, making it a more Eco friendly way to travel.
